Hey, there's a lot coming up in terms of conferences this year. A lot of social change events, innovation get togethers, and ways for groups to get together and really make a difference.
Here are some conferences that are coming up this year, with an excerpt of their description. You should check them out, if you're able:
Nonprofit 2.0 – June 26 in Washington, DC.
Nonprofit 2.0's more than just a conference on the next generation web. It’s a next generation conference in format. NonProfit 2.0 features sessions led by the most innovative nonprofit campaigners, thought leaders, and strategists in the space.
It'll be done in an unconference way with no PowerPoint, 15 minute leads for keynotes (folks, I'll be keynoting this with Majora Carter and Michael Smith), and open questions and dialogue for fantastic conversations. Then from mid-morning forward, NonProfit 2.0 shifts into a full-on Unconference with DC’s brightest minds strategizing for social good.
